Beer In Ads #789: Starts Where Beer Leaves Off


Thursday’s ad is for Country Club Malt Liquor, from 1966, brewed by the Pearl Brewing Company of San Antonio, Texas and St. Joseph, Missouri. The selling points seem quite odd, like “it’s short on head, but long on what you drink malt liquor for,” which of course is for the “walloping good taste.” Uh-huh. That’s why people drink malt liquor. I always wondered that.

    Its biggest claim to fame was the pony can – now, you rarely see it in anything but quart/40-oz bottles that the street drunks buy.
